[ADMN/WEB] [BukkitDev] Buycraft -The most advanced Donation Plugin.

Discussion in 'Archived: Plugin Releases' started by lmc, Aug 16, 2011.

  1. [​IMG]
    Over 100,000 servers have used Buycraft over the last 2 years.
    What is Buycraft, and why does my Minecraft server need it?
    Buycraft enables you to sell in game items/memberships to your community, allowing yourself to fund your server bills to keep your Minecraft server alive. Buycraft is basically an online shopping cart system for your own server!​
    How will my players use Buycraft?
    After you have created a Buycraft account, you are given an online webstore which you can use to promote your items for sale. Your players will visit this website and be able to purchase the items that they want, be it a collection of armour, or a monthly VIP membership.​
    What can I sell to my users, and how?
    Buycraft enables you to sell ANYTHING to your users, from a collection of armour upgrades, to monthly VIP memberships. When a player purchases a product, it is automatically processed on your Minecraft server, and removes all hassle of managing payments by yourself. All these different options will take the worry out of funding your Minecraft server.​
    Some of the awesome features available:
    • Create donation packages which can reward your players with anything you imagine.
    • Setup advanced packages for memberships ranks, with support for automatic Paypal subscriptions.
    • Many Payment gateways supported! (Paypal, Stripe, Google Wallet, Paymentwall, 2Checkout, Onebip, Paygol, Payza, and Coinbase.)
    • Coupon codes to offer discounts to your players.
    • Run promotional sales to gain attention to certain donation packages.
    • Cumulative ranking to enable your players to upgrade their ranks.
    • Custom variables to offer advanced customisation of your packages.
    • Detailed donation statistics to see how well your server is performing.
    • Multiple webstores per account, with the ability to create sub accounts for your other moderators/administrators on your server.
    • Advanced fraud protection to prevent chargebacks.
    • Webstores available in over 8 languages.
    • You can change your webstore theme and even integrate it into your own website.
    • Everything is hosted by us, resulting in a hassle free and inexpensive way to run your own webstore! The Buycraft platform is updated regularly with many new features added each month.

  2. This has nothing to do with that, and is another problem which you should contact here or support about.

    Great system but need to add more payment options such as Google checkout.

    Google checkout is something that probably will get added eventually, but that's no promise.

    Lmc, I need help.

    I am currently the biggest server that is employing your donation system, which makes it very aggravating for me when your system is not functioning properly on my side.

    After the update, your plugin stopped functioning. I understand that 3.9 should would with 1.2.3, and therefore I would like to ask you to troubleshoot the problem with me, because as of right now I have absolutely no idea what's going on.

    Thank you ahead of time,

  8. Hardware system checks have started, and site will be back online in a few hours. Sorry about this guys, I am very frustrated on this myself and I do not like to see the site down, but it is for the best in the long run. I will keep you all updated and will make sure to give out some premium vouchers when the site is back online to say sorry to you all.


    I cannot help you without you providing more information. Please read my previous post as well to inform yourself of the current site status.

    lmc Already stated in the starting post (^Above^) that it will be done for around 5 hours! They will be giving away free premium to some people too, I know you don't want it but many others (like me) would really like it :D

    I apologize for the unintended rudeness, I was in a hurry to go somewhere and very frustrated with my server, but I downloaded the latest version of your plugin (3.9) and I added a few new packages as well as a paypal payment option. Unfortunately, when I restarted the server and typed /buy nothing happened. I would like to politely inform you, that your plugin may be defective on your side.

    Thanks for listening,

    I laugh at the amount of people who simply cannot read, feel sorry for you lmc.

    Have you had anytime to look into my suggestion of required X amount of inventory slots available for a user to receive a package? I'm going to take a crack at trying to add some checks myself for this, but I'll probably fail.

    Anwho, thanks for the great plugin!

    Is The Website Backup

    I had a similar issue. Did you delete your Buycraft folder when you updated? If you did, you'll need to go to your buycraft control panel and copy your secret back in to the buycraft config.

    Also, if the problem just started occurring, it's because the site is down.

    Hope this helps you out.
  22. Server will be back up soon guys the technicians are working hard on the hardware.

    lmc My two cents on the future of Buycraft: Make a WordPress plugin available and have it verify the domain/license/serial/API with your servers once every 24 hours so we can avoid things like this happening. There's plenty of plugins out there do this, plus this would allow more control over the visual customisation of Buycraft and further integration within our websites whilst maintaining the same business model for you guys and avoiding any downtime.

    Obviously you can retain the current functionality for those who want it, but I would say that this is an absolute must before someone else does it.
  24. Can I please just point out that
    This is the only downtime we have had in over 2 months, as soon as we are offline everyone acts as if it is a regular issue. It isn't and if your not happy with our current 99% uptime then have someone develop a five star grade webstore which will cost you hundreds. Oh and then you have to pay for your hosting on top of that. Buycraft in terms of cost is a steal for you all an you should be grateful we are running this service. Be patient that's all I ask.

    @lmc I am well aware that this is the only downtime you had in two months, but can I please just point out that any downtime is bad and that this can be avoided?

    Great software can be free and open source and it is only a matter of time until someone sees this as a great niche. I helped write PrestaShop as it happens so I happen to know what five star grade ecommerce consists of and it should involve no downtime and that can be helped by not relying on third party servers. I can see a WordPress plugin being written and published on CodeCanyon for a few dollars that does this specifically for Minecraft. 'Five star' ecommerce generally includes an API and a failsafe to avoid downtime.

    I don't for one second deny that it is a good deal, but I'm merely pointing out that things can be done better and if they can be done better then they most certainly should be. Heck, send me your API documentation and I'll happily give writing the plugin a try. Only trying to help, no need to be bordering on offensive with your replies to my suggestions on the future of Buycraft and how to stay ahead. I love what you guys do, I have so much respect for you, but is it wrong to have ideas on how to make something better and expand the install base? I understand that you are stressed, but making comments on what clients should and should not be grateful for is bordering on offensive.

    Hope you resolve your server issues soon.

    No it's not defective it works like a charm. Do you get any errors on startup in the console? That's the first thing you shall look for when your plugins don't work.

    Many have just had the problem that they have written the API key wrong. Try to change it. :)

    I think your plugin is awesome, your commitment is awesome, your pricing is awesome, your product is awesome, and you aren't enough appreciated for your work.

    Your plugin already deliverd me around 2000 EURO!

    Take your time to let this work again :D, your uptime is great, though I got 65 euro of donations in que atm, they have to wait then, since your plugin is so awesome and helpful thats just worth the littlebit of downtime that comes with it. My server has way more downtime than your plugin ^^. Though 120 peeps online atm.
  29. Thanks, comments like these really do help us to continue development & support for you guys just sometimes downtime is inevitable using technology
  30. is it for 1.2.3? i donĀ“t get what the [1938] stands for
  31. Hey. After reading the reply I realised it was a tad offensive and I apologise for the issues, the server is back online now and working just fine. If you contact me via a pm I will be able to sort you out with some premium as you requested in that support ticket. We also offer api doc in the server panel, I will get around to creating a Wordpress plugin however I've never looked into wordpresses api before so it may take some time.
